“Every piece I make here reflects a successful combination of artistry, clay, chemistry, and heat. I love my work, and because of that, each creation is a unique work of art that came to be from a ball of clay, crafted with my hands and heart, and backed with over twenty-five years of study and experience.

Blessed with an overactive imagination, a playful inner child, and a desire to make everyone smile when they see my work, there is creativity and whimsy in everything I make.”
